Your thoughts?

Q...
It's hard to say (I can't find any info on Russia's "gateway" as you call it)... but you blocked a whole /8 which is 16777216 IP addresses. You probably would have been better off blocking the individual ISP's that are causing you problems... using a /24 or maybe a /16.

What was your reason for blocking entire chunks of Europe?
